Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi peeps got a problem here, im trying to decode url's but the unescape method isn't doing the job, what i'm looking for is some code that would replicate what this tool does: http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/dencoder/ and again, url_unescape has been tried and doesn't give the same result as what that tool does.

    Do you have a spec for what that tool does, or did you expect us to reverse engineer it for you?
